is the chance that senator rubio's office gives marco rubio supporting a conference meeting. the immigration bill with a more limited bill that might come out of the house. rubio spokesman said we are recognizing the reality that the house will not pass immigration reform. this time the only approach that has a chance of success is to focus on the aspects of reform on which there is a consensus through a series of individual bills. rubio is saying if there is a dummy bill out of the house that would force a conference commito to get the bill passed, he would not support his own bill. next up, $24 million is how much money outside groups have spent either for or against all the folks running for governor or state legislature in the state of new jersey. they said that's a record amount for the exlection that will likely see chris christie cruising to a second term. remember between new york and philly it's expensive to run ads in the garden state. a lot of money for an election we know is going on. next up, 45 is the margin that makes chris christie jealous. how many points bill deblasio has i
